Deepest Indoor Pool in the World
The swimming pool can be a large piece of area where it is filled with water. Unlike rivers or oceans, these pools are mixed with certain chemicals in order to maintain a certain cleanliness level to it. The usual chemicals they use are chlorine and other additives. Swimming pools require certain maintenance in order to keep it healthy. Pools can be in public or private establishments as well as for personal property. Pools are known to be either wide or deep depending on the purpose used. People who practice in pools for diving prefer deep pools. There are those who use it for swimming practices or lessons then the long ones are usually their choice. There are those who prefer the casual purposes such as hangouts so basically any pool type can be fit. There is also the world’s deepest indoor pool which is called Nemo 33.
Location, Size and History
Nemo 33 is located at Brussels in Belgium. It has the title of being the largest indoor pool in the world and for all the good reasons. It has a depth of 34.5 meters or 113 feet and it is filled with nearly 2.8 million liters of non-chlorinated but highly filtered spring water. The water is maintained at a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
The pool’s design itself is more dominant on the vertical aspect rather than being long and elongated horizontally. This is perfect for diving purposes and the lower levels have caves and certain areas that can be accessed when people use certain scuba diving gear.
The concept of the Nemo 33 was started by a 20 year old engineer back in 1996. John Beernaerts who was also a diving enthusiast started the creation with the Nemo 33. It was in 2004 where the Nemo 33 was officially opened and it became a very successful business establishment with just more than swimming pool services.
